The Tale:

Brown committed to Penn State over offers from Syracuse and Temple. While Brown picked up an offer late in the process, Penn State was always considered a player in his recruitment should they offer. He’s a dynamic playmaker, the only running back in this class, and his commitment was kept under wraps and took most of the recruiting world by surprise.


Brown is likely to play running back for the Nittany Lions, but his athleticism and versatility could see him switch over to the defensive side of the ball later in his career should a move be needed. He offers an impress mix of speed and power and has been terrorizing defenses throughout Pennsylvania for the majority of his high school career, including a 722-yard, 10-touchdown game his junior season.

Welcome to Penn State, Journey!
